Located on the line between London and Dartford, it was originally part of the London and Greenwich Railway. It is also part of The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) extension to Lewisham which opened in December 1999. The current Grade II listed building was designed by George Smith in 1840, making it one of the oldest station buildings in the world.
